Oklahoma Sees Over 150 Quakes In A Week

Luke 21:11 There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.

The Oklahoma Geological Survey is reporting that over 150 earthquakes took place last week in the state.

According to data from the United States Geological Survey, Oklahoma would only experience three or fewer 3.0 or greater magnitude earthquakes in a year.  In the firt two months of 2014, over 25 quakes topped that level.

An earthquake expert Michael Lewchuk says that likely one seismic event can trigger many other events.  Last week, a dozen of the earthquakes above 2.5 on the Richter scale all took place around Liberty Lake near Guthrie, Oklahoma.

One local resident said the ongoing quakes impact “like a bomb going off” and that they are causing quakes in the foundations of homes.

It’s not only Oklahoma experiencing quake issues.  Kansas governor Sam Brownback has issued an order calling for a public safety study on oil and gas drilling’s connection to quakes.   Texas and Arkansas have also been looking into the connection.
